Laura Z. - Seeking Work in Carol Stream

11.42 / hour

I have been nannying/babysitting for the past 10 years. I have watched kids from newborns to 12 years old. Currently I am working for a family with four kids: 5 year old twin girls, an 8 year old girl, and an 11 year old boy. Since, the twins are now going to be in kindergarten I am going to be looking for some part time work with another family since my current family won't need me for as many hours with all of the kids in school. I have lots of experience with driving kids EVERYWHERE: playdates, children's museums, libraries, parks, camps, school, bowling, and even meeting parents at the doctor or dentist. I love sitting in Evanston because going to the beach with kids is so much fun. I am going to school to get my bachelors in Education k-9.
